40 + 3 = still waiting....

As the title suggests I am still waiting for the arrival of our baby!

This picture was taken last night, so at 40 weeks and 2 days and while I still feel incredibly well, I look at this and think I do look a little tired.

Anyway onto the more important things - a nursery update!

I have completed and hung the three canvases and am really happy with how they look on the wall. There will be a shelving unit of some sort below this where assorted other animal friends can live.

This is the first of the cushions for the room - just to toss onto a chair really -no real purpose to them!

Thanks to the EB sewing girls for encouraging me to have a go at these. Novy was egging me on, having done some herself and I used Corrie's technique with an overlapped back - so no zippers or buttons required.

So it's back to waiting for me again now, might get stuck into the giraffe cushion while I have the time.

You look fantastic. I don't think you look tired at all!

I love what you have done with the nursery...will definitely suit a boy or a girl. Yes, sew up more cushions ;)

I think you look wonderful! Hang in there, and get as much rest while you can - it won't be long now! :0)

You look great...if you get a chance, could you post a picture of what you looked like at the end of the pregnancy with the girls???? I am just really interested to see the difference (or did you go really early with the girls and therefore not relevant??)

You are glowing! I am soo clucky. :) Bring on the babe!
Your nursery is so cute - not too baby-ish and the cushions look wonderful. You may inspire me to have a go at a few.

You look wonderful! Take it easy won't you? You will be so tired after the birth - and it will happen soon!!!!
